Think. Create. But most importantly, stay alive.

Street Poetry

There’s an infestation in my mind’s imagination. I hope they choke on smoke cuz I’m smoking them out the basement.

This is not rap; this is not hip-hop – just another attempt to make the voices stop. Rapping to prove nothing, just writing to say something cuz I wasn’t the only one who wasn’t rushing to say nothing.

This doesn’t mean I lost my dream, just right now I have a really crazy mind to clean. Knaw mean? No I didn’t understand a thing you said.

If I didn’t know better, I’d guess you’re all already dead. Mindless zombies walking around with a limp and a hunch, saying stuff like, “You only live once”. Yeah, once.

You got one time to figure it out. One time to twist and one time to shout. One time to think, and I say we start now.

Because death inspires me, like a dog inspires a rabbit.

Truce

Now the night is coming to an end,
The sun will rise and we will try again.

Stay alive, stay alive for me.
You will die, but now your life is free,
Take pride in what is sure to die.

I will fear the night again,
I hope I’m not my only friend.

Stay alive, stay alive for me.
You will die,
but now your life is free,
Take pride in what is sure to die.

Goner

I’m a Goner
Somebody catch my breath
I’m a Goner
Somebody catch my breath

I wanna be known
By you
I wanna be known
By you

I’m a Goner
Somebody catch my breath
I’m a Goner
Somebody catch my breath

I wanna be known
By you
I wanna be known
By you

Car Radio

I ponder of something great
My lungs will fill and then deflate
They fill with fire
Exhale desire
I know it’s dire
My time today

I have these thoughts
So often I ought
To replace that slot
With what I once bought
‘Cause somebody stole
My car radio
And now I just sit in silence

Sometimes quiet is violent
I find it hard to hide it
My pride is no longer inside
It’s on my sleeve
My skin will scream
Reminding me of
Who I killed inside my dream
I hate this car that I’m driving
There’s no hiding for me
I’m forced to deal with what I feel
There is no distraction to mask what is real
I could pull the steering wheel

I have these thoughts
So often I ought
To replace that slot
With what I once bought
‘Cause somebody stole
My car radio
And now I just sit in silence

I ponder of something terrifying
‘Cause this time there’s no sound to hide behind
I find over the course of our human existence
One thing consists of consistence
And it’s that we’re all battling fear
Oh dear, I don’t know if we know why we’re here
Oh my,
Too deep
Please stop thinking
I liked it better when my car had sound

There are things we can do
But from the things that work there are only two
And from the two that we choose to do
Peace will win
And fear will lose
There’s faith and there’s sleep
We need to pick one please because
Faith is to be awake
And to be awake is for us to think
And for us to think is to be alive
And I will try with every rhyme
To come across like I am dying
To let you know you need to try to think

I have these thoughts
So often I ought
To replace that slot
With what I once bought
‘Cause somebody stole
My car radio
And now I just sit in silence

I ponder of something great
My lungs will fill and then deflate
They fill with fire
Exhale desire
I know it’s dire
My time today

I have these thoughts
So often I ought
To replace that slot
With what I once bought
‘Cause somebody stole
My car radio
And now I just sit in silence
